I don't Bill. But if I may suggest, talk with a gun shop. They stay updated on these kind of laws.

Autocar Shipping a gun into Canada is a real PITA  !!! you have to find a dealer that will ship it for you to a Canadian Dealer who will accept it, sometimes they get hung up for weeks at customs. Most dealers i know wont even think about it they just don't want the hassle. Don

I have had my share of issues shipping across the Canadian border a few times with mere Hi Po outboard motor parts. It's a hit and miss thing, I can't begin to fathom shipping a gun considering the customs issues I've dealt with.

BUT - then again, you never know. I recieved a package from my step father from Kauai, Hawaii, a cardboard box all taped up. It turned out he had sent me his trusty stainless steel mini 14 Ruger, with a 5 round clip full of hollow point rounds ! I was waiting for the Feds to show up at any moment. Never got a call. He being 87 years old, never had a second thought. Get this, the scope was still spot on...

Don't send by USPS...they won't allow it. Send it via FedEx or UPS. Also, call ATF for guidance. Any respectable FFL in the US will know how to ship the gun. As long as its not illegal to own in Canada, it shouldn't be a problem.
There are no problems; only solutions we haven't found yet.
